Rod: You are now speaking to matters that many of us have been discussing for years.

DFO is NOT a "friend" of any user group beyond FN's. The closures of late are specifically designed to reallocate the fisheries resource from any and all users to FN's only. Period. Already there have been over 50 DFO sanctioned FN openings in the Fraser targeting endangered chinook, and the illegal catch of critically endangered sockeye has topped 10,000 (without any investigation nor charges being laid whatsoever).

These closures affect a LOT more area than just the Fraser. Sweeping closures & restrictions offshore effect huge numbers of both recreational and commercial fishing people. Get used to it. In the spirit of reconciliation, the government is handing our resource directly over to one user group, at a cost to all. And regardless of how well you attempt to present the issues (well done video btw) they (the gov) is never going to do anything otherwise.

Get over it. Salmon fishing for the most part is done.

So at what point do all of us colonials quit doing any salmon enhancement, walk away from pouring money into things like the big bar slide and say “ oh well, too bad for you”.?
Why should I pour any more of my tax dollars Into creating salmon for only one user group to access? 
From what I see The future showing for salmon fishing maybe we should defund anything to do with salmon enhancement and let the chips fall where they may.

Ummm.... I would not put any split shot on the leader...let alone 4!!!

Keep the split shot or weight b4 the swivel, then peg a bead 1-2" above the hook on a 15-18" leader...easy peasy

Step up your leader. Not worth losing a trophy to 10lb leader. If you hook into something big you want at least a chance to get it to hand assuming your targeting steelhead.

I use 4 old medium school split shots and a 25 gram float. I like the ones at berrys when their in stock. I have use split shots for as long as i can remember and have never had a line failure do to a split shot.

that sounds effective. so you space the 4 split shots evenly over an 18-24" leader and just have the bead at the standard 1 inch or so above the hook?

thx

This was posted on one of the CV Facebook pages: https://youtu.be/O80z54FKpLU

Underwater cleanup of the limit hole with lots of unethical river treasure. I guess technically everything falls under that category as the area is closed to fishing ::) He's only got half a dozen videos right now but I've subscribed and am hoping for more. He spots some chinook in the CV in this one: https://youtu.be/eSbSb8iPNZE

Edit: He's got about 40 videos... was looking in the wrong spot!

Well, the next thing will be taking over your property. This is a trend and it's not going to stop when they take your fishing and hunting away.

This has already happened to farmers in the Chilcotin area. News reports of land being purchased by the province to help settle land agreements with FN groups. One family in particular told the true and stated they had no choice in the matter. Basically expropriation.

Agree. It’s done on the Fraser River to the recreational sector.

While it is indeed a trend, I will never stop fishing, nor hunting, nor give up any property we own.
Ever.
Period.

--The quota is not the major concern...its where, how, when it is taken, and what stocks, especially if endangered runs are taken as by-catch.  Extracting target quota from mixed stocks has always been a significant issue. It is much more difficult for Lower Frazer fishers to extract only their thier target quota...we have to figure out how to sucessfully seperate non target stocks or stop fishing.
